While undergoing breast augmentation, besides deciding between saline versus silicone implants, you also need to make a decision as to what cup size you want your new breasts to be. The breast implants’ sizes are not measured as cup sizes, but in cubic centimeters (cc). The measurement based on volume yields more precise breast implant sizes.
Often, women are concerned that opting for a much larger size will make the change too obvious.
